Happy October, y’all! Today marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I kindly ask y’all to remember to do your self breast checks and wear your pink proudly. I mean, this is the one time per year that we’re encouraged to wear nothing but pink, as well as to relentlessly encourage the men in our lives to wear pink, without the possibility of judgement. Even if you’ve never been directly affected by the disease, 1 in 8 women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. According to, for women in the United States, breast cancer mortality rates are the highest of any other cancer, second only to lung cancer, and it’s the 2nd most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women, second only to skin cancer. It doesn’t run in my family, but I know too many brave women who’ve either personally fought or supported a loved one fighting for the cure.

I’m always so pleased to see national retailers specially curating collections and donating sales proceeds during the month of October to show their support for the fight against breast cancer. I shared my collaboration with the Talbots Limited Edition Breast Cancer Collection yesterday, which you can check out here, and I’ve combined a few of their limited-edition items with products from other popular BCA-supportive brands to create my list of 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness Favorites. As previously mentioned, the proceeds from the sales of all of these items directly benefit breast cancer research and the promotion of early detection and education.

    I don’t need an excuse to wear pink but it’s always good to wear more in October. These picks are really nice! Thanks for the round-up. 🙂
